The town will be rebuilt on its old foundations; the mansions will be splendid again. 
Thanksgiving will pour out of the windows; laughter will spill through the doors.

  • May has been an interesting month to say the least. We are all finding ourselves in a
    place of more time and less structure. With the Manor being closed, its been a time
    to really analyze what it means to be in ministry at the Manor. With the doors
    closed, it seemed that ministry closed and this brought me to the realization that the
    Manor is...

    Just Call Me The Bread Man!

    May 29, 2020

    Since we have moved to Exhibition Street in Guelph, we have discovered the most amazing place to get bread, Polestar Hearth, a bakery just around the corner.  I have to admit that with all the social distancing requirements, waiting in line has taught me to appreciate it even more.  They make incredible sour dough bread and our...

    Never Be The Same Again!

    April 29, 2020

    I have been so grateful for is to have Jordan, Addi and Rylan working with me during this time as an essential service.  However, what an incredible time of upheaval in our world it has been.  We have all had our lives turned upside down with this Covid19 outbreak, social distancing and lack of real meaningful connection with other...

  • It has definitely been an interesting week to say the least with the spread of Covid19.  I know it has forced many of us into a place where we have had opportunity to self-reflect.  Questions like the following may become more real to us than ever before:

    Am I using my time wisely?

    Am I taking anything for granted?

    Am I employing a...

    Passing The Baton by Sharon Ninaber

    March 22, 2020

    In 2018, the Lord clearly changed the direction of the ministry at the Manor. Sunday services came to a halt and as I cried out for more workers to revive them.  Instead, He sent ladies to me that felt called to help out with Thursday night outreaches to the club. Sunday services ended, but He put a spotlight on our ministry to the dancers...

  • Over New Year's I was praying and seeking Gods will with the Manor Team. He specifically said to me "Jenny you think your teaching these girls how to not dance, but I'm teaching you how to dance!"

    I was shocked by this and then I thought how do you dance? I got the image of Jesus and I dancing together. God reminded me of the verse 2 Corinthains...

    Once and For All

    January 31, 2020

    I saw a great meme in my facebook feed this week.  It said “Religion: I messed up.  My Dad is going to kill me.  The Gospel: I messed up.  I need to call my Dad.

    I think it does a really good job of the sense of fear and trembling that most people of the OT had when the High Priest entered the Holy of Holies.  I...

    The Power of A Genuine Connection

    December 31, 2019

    so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.  1 Thessalonians 2:8

    One of the most personal and touching moments for me while I was in Uganda was hearing from Jeslor, the young man who leads Trust Future Uganda, that Sharon and I were. “part of...

    Being Bold In Our Prayers!

    December 1, 2019

    One of the things that has really struck me about the Lord's Prayer or as some say the pray Jesus taught His disciples to pray is this profound phrase, "your will be done on earth as it in heaven."  Well, what is the will of God in heaven?  It is the absence of sin, disease and torment.

    John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill...

  • I don't wear tiaras or ball gowns, and when someone calls me princess I cringe a little ... But last night I put om my mentor's wedding dress from the 90's (shoulder pads and all :) I wore a tiara and was announced as Princess Twila and I was sure I could not have been further outside of my comfort zone ...but I wasn't alone.  I sat at...
